An avid knitter from Burnham is recreating clothing from 1914 for a First World War memorial film.

Tell Them of Us tells the story of soldier Robert Crowder who died at Passchendaele aged 21.

Angela Bannister, 53, saw the online appeal for knitters to help recreate the clothing and accessories from First World War knitting patterns and decided to help.

She said: "I am very lucky and excited to be helping in this film, I can't wait to see it."
